Easy Grooves Class - Thursday 19:30-20:40

Easy beats class for beginners, it’s also a warm up session for advanced players.

About the ‘Easy Grooves’ Class:

This class is suitable for beginners and as a warm up for more experienced players. In this session we explore the sounds on the djembe drum starting with the ‘bass’ (middle of the drum), the ‘tone’ (side of the drum) and finally ‘slap’. After some initial work on technique, we explore djembe rhythms from Guinea Conakry, Senegal and Mali in West Africa.

There is a common and healthy mix of abilities in the Easy Grooves Class. We plan the material for Easy Grooves so there is something for everyone’s level - easy, accessible parts for complete beginners and more challenging parts for experienced players.

Advanced Beats Class, plus Easy Grooves

Thursday 19:30-21:30

An extended session for Advanced students. Attend the Easy Grooves and stay for an extra half hour to go a little deeper. By invite only.
